The name of my Christmas Easy Street quilt will be "Easy, Peasy, Lemon Squeezy." Why? Because it's been an easy quilt, and I like the name very much. I like how it sounds. Here's what I learned from the internet:
It comes from a 1970's British TV commercial for Lemon Squeezy detergent. A little girl points out dirty greasy dishes to an adult (mom or relative) and then the adult produces Lemon Squeezy and they clean the dishes quickly. At the end of the commercial the girl says "Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy".
I may have heard the phrase before the movie, but it is now forever linked in my mind to the wonderful movie "The Greatest Game Ever Played", which came out in 2005. The character Eddie Lowery, a caddie, frequently reminded his underdog golfer, Francis Ouimet, that a shot was "easy peasy, lemon squeezy".

Speaking about easy quilt squares, here's what's on my design wall. I have two more 8 inch blocks finished for the Grandmother's Choice quilt from Barbara Brackman's suffragette series, and they both went together with no problems. The block for week 15:
|15. Centennial: New Zealand's Victory|
and the 16th week's block:
|16. Capital T: Sarah Pellet|

We are now on block 17, out of 49. I am thinking about sashing these blocks in a solid cheddar with black cornerstones. The design wall is fairly empty right now, so I'll have to put some sashing up there with some blocks and see how it looks. Please go to Design Wall Mondays to see what other people have on their design walls.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
